Impact of Climate Change in Siberia
Transcript of Impact of Climate Change in Siberia
- Current climate in Siberia
- What are the expected changes in the area?
- How does this effect the habitat of the area?
- What actions can be taken?
- Siberia is most known for the extreme winter weather.
- Temperature rises and gets warmer than the winter season.
- The average temperature rises from 10 °C. to 20 °C.
In the winter
In the summer
- The precipitation in Siberia is not very high.
- Snow in the winter falls in average from 6 inches to 10 inches. (Titus. 2012)
- Majority of precipitation happens during June through August. (Titus. 2012)
What are the expected changes in the area?
- The temperature in Siberia has rose about two degrees Celsius
- However, many scientists have said that Siberia has been accelerating the climate change themselves and not only from global warming. (Lewis. 2012)
- Permafrost is frozen soil which covers most of Siberia.
- They lock greenhouse gases underground.
- Because of the global warming, the permafrost is melting, which releases methane. (Max. 2010)
- Massive forest fires happening in Siberia are sending heaps of smoke worldwide.
- It is getting more and more frequent (every 65 years) because of the climate change caused by global warming.
- During 2003 in Central Siberia, a forest fire swept 15,000 square miles. (Highfield. 2007)
How does this effect the habitat of the area?
Benefits from climate change
- The agriculture in Siberia benefits from the climate change.
- The Siberian taiga, will move north by the end of 21th century.
- Siberia would be dominated by non forested lands and result better agriculture. (Tchebakova. 2012)
Effects of forest fire
- When heavy snow falls after a forest fire, the melting process may cause the topsoil and ashes to erode.
- Harms the ecosystem and inhabitants.
What actions can be taken?
- Siberians have built buildings
- Prevents the thawing
- A Russian scientist, Sergey Zimov is trying to recreate ice age.
- His goal is to recreate grass lands.
- He is bringing back wild animals.
